The Mercury Cars Guide : March 13th 2010
10--- Classifieds 62 300 400 • carsguide.com.au Saturday, March 13, 2010 COCO'S CLASSICS: Top left: Actor Salvatore Coco enjoys a coffee next to his 1989 BMW. Inset: Coco with one of his first cars --- a Ford Falcon station wagon. Underbelly's Salvatore Coco tells us about his love of a good classic. Monique Butterworth talks to Stars with Cars Classic clunkers to collectables WHEN you start you life with cars in a Volk- swagen Beetle you are going to learn. That is exactly where Salvatore Coco began and he has his share of breakdown stories. He loves classic cars, which is appropriate for an actor who is stepping back in time for the third series of Underbelly. This time Coco is Hammer, an enforcer with plenty of muscle, in ''The Golden Mile''. He describes the role, which sees him as a mate of Kings Cross identity John Ibraham, as ''an awesome experience''. ''Iamabitofacarbuff.I've always liked cars since I was a young boy,'' he said. ''The first car I bought was a red Volkswagen Beetle when I was 19. Hasn't everyone had one of those? ''It gave me more problems than anything but I was young and enjoyed tinkering and fix- ing things. ''Now I drive a silver 1989 BMW E30 I've had for 10 years. ''That particular model is one of the best BMWs I believe. ''It's one of those cars that just loves the road. I drive a lot between Sydney and Canberra and it absolutely loves it. ''I'm pretty strict when it comes to people getting in my car. I don't like people muck- ing around because the leather seats are original seats. No one plays around in the back seat and I won't be playing around back there either. ''In the last two years I've broken down at least five times. Recently, coming back from Canberra, I had forgotten to change the timing belt on the motor and I blew the head. That cost me a lot of money and a two-night stay in Goulburn. ''When I first bought my Volkswagen I was working as a pizza delivery driver. I was running late for work and the car just stopped. So I opened up the back and there was one wire from the coil to the engine which had burnt out. ''I pulled a wire from one of the speakers, attached it and it worked. I didn't even have a pair of pliers, I had to do it with my teeth. ''So I left the wire on there and drove around with one speaker working. ''If I make a few million dollars the first thing I'll buy is a Ford Falcon XY GTHO Phase III.'' O T - OM All prices include GST. Vehicles for illustration purposes only.
